ATLANTA - Feb. 26, 2014 - PRLog -- Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue Inc., in conjunction with Dogs on Death Row, Stubby’s Heroes and Pet Buddies Food Pantry announces the 3rd Annual Beat the Heat free vaccine and spay/neuter event will be held on March 29, 2014.

This Community Outreach program for residents of Paulding County annually drastically reduces the number of unwanted pets at the shelters.

“This is the most important work that we do. In our first two years of offering Beat the Heat, we decreased the number of shelter animals in Paulding County by 38%”, said Jason Flatt, Founder and President of Friends to the Forlorn.

Dr. Clay Leathers and members of the staff of New Hope Animal Hospital donate their time and expertise.  “This event is vital to our community,” said Dr. Leathers.

While the event officially starts at 10:00am, come early, as animals will be helped on a first-com, first-serve basis. Attendees must present proof of Paulding County residency and all pets must be on a leash or in a carrier.

Beat the Heat will offer a free Vaccination Clinic for dogs and cats, free Spay and Neuter Registration, free Rabies Vaccinations and free dog and cat food, while supplies last.

The Humane Society estimates that upwards of 4 million animals are euthanized in the United States every year. Over 1.6 million of those are a pitbull mix. “Only 1 in 1000 pitbulls is expected to make it out of a shelter alive. By educating owners on the benefit of spay/neuter to the health and well being of their pets, it is hoped that these numbers go down nationally as they have here in Paulding”, stated Jason.

Friends to the Forlorn was established as a pitbull rescue, but they are eager to help any animal in need.  “We don’t discriminate”, said Jason.
